I’m really glad that I got to go. We had a really nice evening. It was fun and I loved the wine pairings. I wish it could have been a little bit more interactive. Our waiter definitely knows his stuff but it seemed more scripted and there were less chances for questions about the wine and food, you almost didn’t want to interrupt. It would have been good to know there are two price points for the wine pairings. The larger at $135 and the smaller at $75. For my friend who wanted to try the pairing but is not a big drinker it would have been helpful to have been made aware of that in advance. Otherwise, everything was just right. More

But the men coming around with the meats etc. seem to stay in the middle of the room or they run out and have to go in the back for more and really don’t get to the back .

We have frequented Stephen Starr restaurants and enjoy whenever we are in the city going to one. This was our first time to Jones for brunch and it was a great choice. We definitely recommend as they have great variety of choices from omelette a to protein breakfast option and French toast a d traditional options with a twist. Also I was pleased to see they have an espresso bar so I could have my latte. We loved the monkey bread for an app. I had the feta and spinach omelette and my hubby had the Italian turkey omelette and my nephew enjoyed the ample portion of French toast. We will definitely return for breakfast or lunch in the future. More

Mixto was our choice for night 3 of Restaurant Week, and it did not disappoint. We were seated on time for our 7:30pm reservation. We were placed by a drafty door, but thankfully the restaurant wasn't crowded, so the hostess was kind enough to take us to a new table upstairs. Our server was Vincente, and he was very friendly and attentive. Anytime we needed anything, he just seemed to show up at the table. My choices were limited, as I don't eat meat and have a shellfish allergy. I went with the hearts of palm salad, the vegetable paella, and the tres leches cake. My boyfriend chose the sautéed shrimp, the lomo salteado, and the bananas foster empanada. The Restaurant Week special also came with a choice of soup, and we both chose lentil soup. I really liked the lentil soup, and felt like my other choices were okay, but my boyfriend was blown away by everything- the soup, the sautéed shrimp, and the lomo salteado. He said that we absolutely must return, and that it was one of his best overall dining experiences. The desserts were pretty good as well, and as far as drinks- I went with the coconut mojito and he chose the rum punch...both were excellent. I definitely look forward to coming back and ordering from the main menu with more options availa More

My husband had deliciously light lamb meatballs in a good sauce. I had very large, tasty sea scallops with shrimp couscous. (There was a slightly spicy sauce which was too spicy for me, but I was able to eat around it). Our friend had the surprise chicken which looked delicious.(he had a cold so I wasn’t doing any tasting)! Desert was warm, white chocolate bread pudding with large, excellent blackberries. All four of us fully enjoyed our meal. We will definitely return! The staff were experienced and pleasant. More

I enjoyed returning to Caribou Cafe after many (many) years. Their Restaurant Week menu was a fresh departure from other places who put rather ho-hum choices out there. My 3 courses were: escargot (done in a delightful sauce with pastry squares), pork loin (stuffed with lovely sauce over mashed potatoes), and profiteroles (two sizable filled pastries - difficult to eat with a fork without destroying them tho). Very attentive and friendly server (tho he didn't offer much information other than all the choices were good) and regular visits from the busser to take away dishes. Well worth the $35/pp. TWO NOTES: only one other party with us upstairs and they left soon afterwards, so was a bit odd atmosphere. Wine was nice but at $10-$12/glass, our bar bill was as much as the meal - not sure buying by the bottle would have been less expensive either. Just plan on spending much more than you expected if you and/or your party are serious drinkers. ENJOY! More

Our server, Michael, was a pleasure, as was all the staff. Even more, though, I always leave Serpico thinking the same thing: why don’t I come here more? The food is always DELICIOUS! Just an all-around great place. More

We went for their $14.95 lunch buffet for my friend's birthday. We were delighted with the selection of foods. We enjoyed all our food. Their chicken tikka masala, curry goat, vegetable biryani, salt and pepper shrimp, pumpkin lentils, soup, chutneys, raita, and dessert were all delicious. A great deal for the selection and buffet cost. We'll be back! More

Discover Center City

The whole world should knows that there’s more to the diverse dining scene of Center City than cheesesteaks and hoagies. Israeli, Mexican, Japanese and a melting pot of other cuisines are dished up daily in the shadow of the Liberty Bell. French bistros are becoming as commonplace as Italian delis. If you haven’t tried black truffle pizza, what’s stopping you? Whether it’s a cocoa-cured rack of lamb or a vegan wood-roasted carrot that you’re craving, Center City likely has it. Fine dining establishments and casual rooftop bars co-exist in perfect harmony, and top chefs collaborate rather than compete. By the way, the iconic cheesesteaks and hoagies aren't bad either.
